Ready to roam where the river takesI want to be free of all my own expectations.Let me not be a slave to my good or bad opinion, not of myself nor of another.Let me love in freedom, no weights, no weights. Let me release the man that put the thought there in the first place. Let me live a life like whatever terrain I am made of. Let me breathe in the skin of my own endless sky. It is time, outside of time.Photo @kpunkka #forgiveness #freedom #untetheredsoul #present #beyou #theworldneedsyou #merrychristmas #home #edenrestored #creation #creation books #nature #discoverwildlife #healing #home #sonanddaughtersrevealed #writers ofinstagram #writers #vagabonding #discoverearth #discoverglobe #wildlifeonearth #adventureculture #instagood #natgeo #sealegacy #turningthetide #highlands #thehighlandstrilogy #intothewild #healing #being
.Field Notes • 5.Mixed MediaArtist: ϠϞΘ´.J. Krishnamurti Freedom from the Known Chapter 7.Let us put it another way. We are always comparing what we are with what we should be. The should-be is a projection of what we think we ought to be. Contradiction exists when there is comparison, not only with something or somebody, but with what you were yesterday, and hence there is conflict between what has been and what is. There is what is only when there is no comparison at all, and to live with what is, is to be peaceful. Then you can give your whole attention without any distraction to what is within yourself - whether it be despair, ugliness, brutality, fear, anxiety, loneliness - and live with it completely; then there is no contradiction and hence no conflict..But all the time we are comparing ourselves - with those who are richer or more brilliant, more intellectual, more affectionate, more famous, more this and more that. The `more' plays an extraordinarily important part in our lives; this measuring ourselves all the time against something or someone is one of the primary causes of conflict..Now why is there any comparison at all? Why do you compare yourself with another? This comparison has been taught from childhood. In every school A is compared with B, and A destroys himself in order to be like B. When you do not compare at all, when there is no ideal, no opposite, no factor of duality, when you no longer struggle to be different from what you are - what has happened to your mind? Your mind has ceased to create the opposite and has become highly intelligent, highly sensitive, capable of immense passion, because effort is a dissipation of passion - passion which is vital energy - and you cannot do anything without passion..💡💡💡Continued...

..Tao Te ChingVerse 81The Paradoxes of Life.Profound words are not clever.Clever words are not profound..Wise people are not quarrelsome.Quarrelsome people are not wise..Those who are intelligent are not ideologues.Those who are ideologues are not intelligent..The enlightened never hoard anything.They share their possessions..The more they give,the greater their abundance..The Great Integrity is the physician of the universe who heals without harming and who acts without contention...The Tao Te Ching is an ancient Chinese book composed of only 5000 characters (81 verses) written as early as the 6th century BCE by Lao Tzu, the father of Taoism..Tao means path. For Lao Tzu it means not any path, but the specific path to living in concordance with the unity of the universe..According to Lao Tzu, it is the nature of nature to issue from an inextricable relationship of every part to the whole..To live life in accord with the Tao is to be in harmony with all others, with the environment and with one's self. It is to live in synchronicity with processesand to be completely authentic, sincere, natural and innocent... . "In ancient timesthe people knew the Great Integrityin all its subtlety and profundity ..". . ~ Lao Tzu ~
..We’re all — trees, humans, insects, birds, bacteria — pluralities. Life is embodied network. These living networks are not places of omnibenevolent Oneness. Instead, they are where ecological and evolutionary tensions between cooperation and conflict are negotiated and resolved. These struggles often result not in the evolution of stronger, more disconnected selves but in the dissolution of the self into relationship..Because life is network, there is no “nature” or “environment,” separate and apart from humans. We are part of the community of life, composed of relationships with “others,” so the human/nature duality that lives near the heart of many philosophies is, from a biological perspective, illusory. We are not, in the words of the folk hymn, wayfaring strangers traveling through this world. Nor are we the estranged creatures of Wordsworth’s lyrical ballads, fallen out of Nature into a “stagnant pool” of artifice where we misshape “the beauteous forms of things.” Our bodies and minds, our “Science and Art,” are as natural and wild as they ever were..We cannot step outside life’s songs. This music made us; it is our nature. Our ethic must therefore be one of belonging, an imperative made all the more urgent by the many ways that human actions are fraying, rewiring, and severing biological networks worldwide. To listen to trees, nature’s great connectors, is therefore to learn how to inhabit the relationships that give life its source, substance, and beauty... –David George Haskell
